How do you control algae that builds up in your tank?

  • Since saltwater algae is mostly caused by different things than freshwater algae, the headaches of trying to not only remove but to prevent it can lead to many checks. In some cases, it can seem that by changing (or adding/removing one thing in the tank) algae can just appear overnight and for no good reason.

    How do you remove your algae in your tank, and do you have any tips for those who are getting a massive amount? Do you do physical removal or do you have an invertebrate/fish that takes care of it for you?
